Alexander: It’s been six weeks since Six Flags Magic Mountain began 365-day operations. Have you been out to the park recently to enjoy the light crowds?
Lots of changes are already underway to help ensure an optimal 2018 and beyond at Magic Mountain, but there’s also lots of opportunities for improvement.

Alexander: Who’s ready for another layover adventure??
This time my work brings me to St. Louis, where Sean and I were able to enjoy what is arguably the most underrated Six Flags park.
Coaster wind-chill was below freezing, but that didn’t stop us from having a Freeze-tacular Six Flags day!

Sean: Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Fright Fest is back for another big year of haunting. In the past years they have had a lot of Scare Zones, they toned it down a bit to just six this year. Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Fright Fest has been one of the few events that has always impressed me with their Scare Zones, and unlike separately ticketed events, much relies on their Scare Zones. Let’s take a look at this year’s returning Scare Zones, and the new Damned ‘N Disguise. Continue reading “Six Flags Magic Mountain Fright Fest 2017 – Scare Zone Reviews”
Sean/Zach: Knott’s Scary Farm is easily our favorite haunt event, and that’s mainly due to the impressive collection of original and unique mazes that deliver experiences other events can hardly live up to. Being the oldest halloween event in the state, Knott’s Scary Farm knows what it takes to put an event together, which all started with the infamous Ghost Town Streets. Though we always find the mazes to deliver better than the Scare Zones at the event (like most events), this year the Scare Zones have been the best we have yet seen at the event!

Chad: This year brought some interesting mazes.
I had the unbelievable experience of trying out the RIP Experience. And it was worth it. The price is a very steep one, but with a MASSIVE buffet, two free beers (if you are over 21 years of age), unlimited front of the line for everything in the park and free valet, it was not too bad.
